Well, you wouldn't put 80 psi in an XL tire, but if you have E-rated tires, that is what is called for. And if you have 2000 lbs or more load on the rear, as many of us do, than running the tires low as you suggest is a recipe for disaster.
I run E-rated Michelins on my truck, gives me the peace of mind that my tires will never be an issue.

Reason why is not important but I have 2 D tires and 2 E tires on my truck. They are BFG A/T LT285/70/17. The side wall markings are EXACTLY the same. Both say 3ply polyester,2 ply steel, 1 ply nylon, sidewall 3 plies polyester. Max load single 3195, max load dual 2910. Same number of plies, same load numbers. Only difference is one tire says max load @80psi, the other @ 65psi.
I have about 20k on the tires, both are wearing exactly the same. I rotate every 5k keeping the matching tires on the same axle. I can tell no difference when loaded if the E's or D's are on the back. In the back I run 45 psi empty and 60 loaded, 50 psi in the front always.
.....Oh, and the D's have raised white letters on one side, the E's don't
